Today Ian wrote in on a comment that they are expanding that into what seems like a semi-social activity.
From what I can tell, the idea is to provide internet access and free support, training and materials to enterprising people in Mia channu who cannot otherwise afford internet costs.
Ian has asked for advice on how he can make this successful, and since we already have people among the readers who just went through training on business strategy, and won awards for their social entrepreneurship, I hope they can provide some advice to ian through the comments here.
Here is Ian’s request in the comment:
Thank you for publishing my request for Ã¢â‚¬Å“creativesÃ¢â‚¬Â..we did not get a response..but am pressing on ..the office will be ready in february..with launch date April .Do you attend .startup launches ? This will be at an internet enterprise center we are opening in Mian ChannuÃ¢â‚¬Â¦we intend using TMI as a free user training platform with free high quality marketing information to enable the students progress their idea ..Ã¢â‚¬Âon the fly Ã¢â‚¬Â I did read on your site you help students and i would appreciate any advice you can give to advance TMI for the benefit of Pakistani students who normally cannot afford internet accessÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ We hope to translate into other lanquages.. Do you think using Urdu would improve the chances of TMI being successful in Pakistan ?
Fire away in the comments.
P.S. NO I dont have any vested interest in TMI — its called humanity to be able to help each other once in a while.
